Great food but noisyThe restaurant is really noisy and it was hard to have a conversation.6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic FoodWe really enjoyed our evening at Salt House - mouth watering appetizers to start off (what a selection of tastes!) - followed by the entrees. We all argued who made the better choice - tough to decide between the king salmon, halibut, pork/pork belly, and the steak - each of us thought we made the best choice. Topped it off with excellent desserts - really loved the cheese cake (and the cheese plate)...the others raved about their German chocolate cake...6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentOur first time here. Excellent in all. I had the salmon, wife had the cod, both were prepared to perfection. Nice wine list, though we brought our own older burg, and thankfully we were provided appropriate stems. We'll be back.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMHave lived in SOMA for a yearHave lived in SOMA for a year now and heard good things about Salt House. Tried it the other day with my wife and brother. We had a great night including a great bottle of Pinot from Hope & Grace. My wife and I both had the Pork - outstanding! My brother had the Salmon and loved it. My wife had the Octopus as an appetizer and wasn't thrilled by it.
Overall, a great night and we will be back!6/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood first impressionI brought a new colleague here for lunch and had a good experience, which was important because I want our new employees to feel that they are well taken care of and working at an agency that knows how to conduct busines and treat their employees well. A smooth first lunch with good food, served efficiently and in a nice atmosphere is one step towards making new employees feel like they are in good hands at a company that cares. It's good to know that I can rely on the Salt House to provide this type of experience within a block of our office.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find!Young crowd, energetic vibe, fantastic service. Everyone helps to be sure you are well served. Food was elegantly presented, tasty and piping hot. I had the pork loin which was melt in your mouth tender. We will defiantly be back when next in SF.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SOMA Dinner SpotGreat room, clean, rustic, contemporary feel. Small bar in front. Open kitchen at year of room. Good service, fun, interesting menu. Taste was key and everything was good. Nice moderately priced wine, nice night!5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticVibrant scene, great service, fantastic food. Definitely one of my favorites. Reservations are highly recommended and the food can be a bit slow during lunch but the wait was well worth it.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!The only reason it doesn't get 5 stars is the noise....much too noisy. But, the food is AMAZING!! I went for lunch and had roast pork loin over a bed of farrow with spinach, carrots and roasted apples. I would say the best meal I have had out in a very long time. The flavors were incredible, the pork was perfectly cooked and it was hot! My friend had the flounder sandwich and said it was the best sandwich he'd ever had (and he's PICKY!!)...5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous FoodWe were blown away by the Salt House. It was an absolute memorable evening. I had the pacific cod splashed with the juices from a bowl of the best tasting clams I have ever experienced. Others in the party had a succulent pork tenderloin and the moistest baked chicken imaginable. The veges on the side meshed perfectly with the dishes. The appetizers, which included a creative octopus dish plus peppers served with the freshest Acme bread established the evening. The waiter had professional wine certification and brought us perfectly matched whites and reds within a moderate price range. The desserts were bold but not too heavy and rich. It was certainly one of the best meals we've had in the past few years.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit too loudHad a group dinner/meeting there for five of us. It was loud for that.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceLoved the food and the ambience. Total gem. Be prepared for a lot of noise and the restaurant tends to be very warm5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat lunch spotThis is one of my favorite places for a business lunch and it didn't disappoint this time though the curly fries are hard to eat gracefully. The hamburger, as always, was perfect.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMI keep going back!It's one of my favorite downtown lunch spots. Love the casual cool interior and the food has been consistently great since the day they opened. I work at SFMOMA and it's close enough to meet friends or take out-of-town visitors for lunch. I've tried everything on the menu but often have the burger and onion rings because they are irresistible!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMSalt House is always good.Salt House is always good. I try to have lunch there once a month. Getting in early and making a reservation is the way to go as it fills up fairly quickly at lunch time. Good food and service. I recommend giving them a try. You will return often.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMSan Francisco FindMy wife and I went to Salt House for our 20th anniversary dinner. We were wined and dined to the max. The food was very unique in that I would not have paired a lot of the foods together, but it worked wonderfully! I liked the fact that this was a smaller place, made the ambience all the more inviting. A definite must whenever I am in San Francisco.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe appitizers and snacksThe appitizers and snacks were really fun. We had chips with a dipping sauce that was so good I licked the little bowl. The fries with cheese and gravy was also great. The food was good and the service was fine. The only problem is that open table said we did not honor our reservation. It was worked out, but it was annoying.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMgood burger, but @$15, it better begreat burger, but overall noisy and pricey even for SF. $50 for lunch for 2 even with only one draft purchased in the alcoholic beverage department. no dessert either. Two entrees and two drinks.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMHip dining spotGood cocktails, good food. The menu is a little odd, with oysters, munchies, appetizers and entrees, but not a great choice for any category. Loved the seared Pipinto peppers. The duck breast was very good, but a bit hard to cut. Would prefer it sliced thick.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious food, priced reasonablyDelicious food, priced reasonably for the quality. Portions are "just right". Only thing was that we were seated too close to the door and it was cold.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the steak ceasar saladI had the steak ceasar salad and shared the fries; it was all very delicous and the service was great. We made an 11:45 reservation and were running late, when I called ahead the hostess held our table and sat us right away. I will definitely be bringing clients back!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMnever disappointed.Everytime we go, we are pleasantly surprised. What is nice about this restaurant they only serve what is in season. Our quail appetiser was delicious. For entree we had cod with clams in broth. The fish was nice and flaky. It was not drowning in broth. Just a nice shallow puddle. Had this with peas and carrots on the side. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, service and ambianceGreat food, service and ambiance for a business lunch.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe manager was very niceThe manager was very nice and gave us a complimentary dessert wine when they were having difficulty with their cc machine.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was wonderful! IThe food was wonderful! I had the grains and vegetables and my friend had the poached egg and vegetables. We're vegetarian, the restaurant isn't. Everything was very flavorful and great portion sizes. The menu changes all of the time and we'll certainly be back. The ambiance is loud but energetic In a good way. I wouldn't recommend this for anyone hard of hearing. On a personal note, I had my first date here with the man I'm engaged to. I think it's very romantic :).3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceOne of my all-time favorite lunch spots... Great and interesting selection of dishes, good service - fun times. Will definitely be back again... and again... and again :-)3/6/2013 12:00:00 AMBusy but still performs well above!Located in the Financial District, this restaurant is always packed and it's not just the location. Excellent food, great service, and a place to be seen. Really looked after my VP of my company and I appreciate all they did.2/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
